MEMPHIS, Tenn, June 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - As America prepares to celebrate Independence Day, TruGreen is honoring the lives of military men and women who gave their lives for our country through a social media campaign to support Children of Fallen Patriots, whose mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
Now through July 23, 2014, TruGreen will be donating $1 to Children of Fallen Patriots for every 'like' the TruGreen Facebook page receives. In addition, TruGreen is asking the family members of active duty and military veterans to share an uplifting story about their hero. TruGreen will donate $100 for each story entry, and the entrants of the top five most "voted on" stories will receive gift card prizes.
"At TruGreen, we feel it is our responsibility as good citizens to give back to those in need when we can," said John Hasselle, TruGreen Marketing Manager. "We are honored to be donating to Children of Fallen Patriots, where we know that our support is helping to ensure that every military child who has lost a parent in the line of duty receives all necessary college funding."
"Every penny donated to Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation goes directly toward helping families who have already lost so much," said John Coogan, executive director of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. "For many, the cost of college may be out of reach, and with the help of TruGreen and everyone who 'likes' and submits a story, we will work to make it possible."
